The bad news is there is no Glastonbury festival this year in the UK.
The good news is it gives festival lovers (like you?) an excuse to seek out some new and different festivals. And I have discovered the perfect resource to help you do that. It’s TravelBag’s new Global Festivals Tour. A map of the world highlighting all the must-go festivals around the world. Food, culture, music, art, fashion, literature and the quirky too, like China’s Lantern Festival, Vancouver’s Celebration of Light, Hong Kong’s Dumpling Festival, Day of the Dead in Mexico City or Thailand’s Songkran Water Festival.
While the online guide suggests well-known and large festivals (like Coachella in California) as alternatives to Glastonbury and similar UK festivals, you will also discover more unusual and challenging ones too.
Travelling abroad for festivals has become a growing trend with sites like Travelbag reporting flights to Coachella increased by 81% in last 4 years!
Finding something different to do is not the only reason for checking out the options in the guide. The weather is too! It has rained at 74% of Glastonbury Festivals. Only nine Glastonbury weekends have been completely rain-free.
The Interactive Global festivals Tour lets you filter by festival focus (food, music, culture and arts, literature or bucket list), family friendly and by month.
